Every time I buckle down to write a post about a band like this, I can’t help but invoke statements about the “return of psych-rock.” But it’s unavoidable: Unknown Mortal Orchestra clearly joins the ranks of Foxygen, Tame Impala and Telekinesis in bringing psychedelic music back to the foreground, and I’m absolutely loving it.
“From The Sun” comes off Unknown Mortal Orchestra’s sophmore album II, which was released February 5, 2013 on Jagjaguwar. I haven’t had a chance to listen to the full thing, but you can bet your buttons that I’m going to make an effort to grab it. If you’re with me, you can head over to iTunes for a download.
Once again, hats off to record label Jagjaguwar for getting behind an awesome band.
